Abstract

We present a solution based on the Rayleigh hypothesis. The calculation leads to a matrix system that can be computed to yield the efficiencies of a two-dimensional dielectric grating. The results are compared with previously reported numerical results obtained both with exact theories and with perturbation methods. We show that our method can treat rougher surfaces than can classic perturbation methods.
